We offer products we love to wear. Everything we do has certain values in common; no compromises in terms of materials and construction, timeless design, subtle branding and discrete colorways.


Our sneakers are produced around our own specially developed last, designed to give a narrow and elegant appearance rarely found in shoes of this kind. Their inner soles have arch support and several layers of cushioning. To ensure further support and stability, soles have a metal shank, normally only found in fine dress shoes. Only the finest Italian materials are used; from the leather or suede of the upper and the smooth calf leather of the inner lining, stitched to outsoles from Margom made of natural rubber.

We design our products in Sweden and manufacture them in a carefully selected factory in Portugal. Approximately 80 per cent of the production is finished by hand by skilled craftsmen, giving each product a unique look and feel. We personally spend a great deal of time in the factory with the people who are crafting our products, to ensure the highest possible quality and finish.


THE PRODUCTS

The TARMAC is our Quarter Top sneaker and our first model. It is laid back yet elegant, making it the perfect everyday sneaker. The name Tarmac comes from our love for racing and travelling, and the fact that it is a platform product for us.

The RACQUET is our classic tennis silhouette, with an innovative deconstructed build. The RACQUET has an inner lining only around the heel area, creating an extremely soft sneaker with excellent breathability.

The ATRIUM is our Low sneaker. It has a design inspired by classic racquet-sport sneakers from a time when performance on court was secondary to off court appearance. For this model we use a mix of leather, suede and nylon mesh.

The MONTEM is our Mid Top. Its design is inspired by classic basketball sneakers, but without any unnecessary details. Its sits on top a slightly higher sole with a herringbone pattern, making it an perfect year-round sneaker.

All CQP sneakers are delivered with two pairs of laces, a custom tote bag, a care instruction card and, of course, our compliments.

About us

CQP was born from a passion for great design and a desire to create outstanding products of the highest quality. Everything branded CQP is designed entirely in-house from the ground up and crafted without compromise. CQP currently offers a selection of hand made sneaker models.

CQP’s products are available through C-QP.COM, our Stockholm Showroom and selected retailers. Having limited retail partnerships makes it possible to offer new products quicker and more often, at great value, worldwide.

Our editorial section, Conversations, features interviews with individuals we admire; people doing the right things, the right way and for all the right reasons. Conversations is a way of communicating what we stand for and it is a base for inspiration, discovery and new ideas.

CQP, which stands for Conversations & Quintessential Products, was founded in 2013 under the name Coloquy. The company is based in Stockholm, Sweden.
